Skipp Hat


Designed by Jared Flood for Brooklyn Tweed, the Skipp Hat uses two skeins of Loft in single or two-color brioche to create a beanie, a slouch hat, or a watch cap! Suitable for adventurous beginners or the brioche-savvy, Skipp is a great introduction to brioche knitting, featuring clear instructions with reliable tips from Jared. Brooklyn Tweed considers the Skipp Hat a level 2 out of 5 in difficulty and is offered here as a hard copy only, printed on quality cardstock with full-color images and detailed instructions.
